AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Multi award-winning playwright Patricia Cornelius has created a dynamic new Australian play — Savages — which takes a tough look at masculinity and misogyny amongst a pack of ordinary young men.

'Premiering at fortyfivedownstairs, Savages is a cautionary tale about a group of men who don’t really know themselves or what they can become.

'Four friends embark on the holiday of a life time – but their excitement is soured by anger, bitterness and the disappointment of their own lives … as the pack forms, the dark side of mateship takes over.'
